About the Area
Amelia Island Plantation is on Amelia Island in northeast Florida, just across the St. Mary's River from Georgia and adjacent to the historic city of Fernandina Beach.

The resort overlooks the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west.

Though private, secluded and protected by a gated entry, it is also very convenient. The property is just a short 45-minute drive from downtown Jacksonville and 29 miles from Jacksonville International Airport.

Private and corporate aircraft charters can also fly directly to Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport, four miles north of the Resort.
